This attempt at simulating playground ball delivers on the street but stumbles on the hoops. Famed courts like NYC’s Rucker Park are on the money — right down to the trash-talking and graffiti. And once you figure out the complicated combos, all those windmill dunks, 360 jams, and finger rolls from the foul line are easy as…x-x-[square]. (The gameplay falters on basics like rebounding and shot blocking.) Put in the time and soon you’ll be jammin’ with the best of ’em. Just stay out of the pawnshops and tattoo parlors.
